Urban Cascade

This is an abstract representation of a set of buildings in Poland. I started this piece by adding silver in places that looked somewhat like guns. I started in an urban environment, and I wanted to give the impression of the hidden dangers of such an environment. As I worked, the piece called to mind water pipes, so I began to attempt to give movement to the image. I made certain to make the downward directed shapes black and, upon researching Piet Mondrian, I added dotted lines on the downward facing 'pipes'. Mondrian used a sort of dotted line movement in his piece Broadway Boogie Woogie which was similar in design to my work.
